This special tour combines the sightseeing of the main sites of Athens with the places where St. Paul met the Athenians. You will start with the visit to the naturally fortified hill of the Acropolis, the cornerstone of Athens existence. You will travel back in ancient times walking among the Propylaea, the Temple of Athens Nike, the unique Parthenon & the Erechteion. From the top you will have a panoramic view of the ancient theater of Dionisos & of the Herodion (Odeion of Herodes Atticus). You will also discover the Areopagus (Mar’s Hill) where St. Paul preached the Athenians.
Your next visit will be the Ancient Agora where St. Paul met the Athenians philosophers & exchanged thoughts & ideas regarding the new religion. Our private tour continues with the visit of the Temple of Zeus & of the Hadrian’s Arch along with the famous Panathenaic Stadium (also known as Kallimarmaron), where the first modern Olympic Games were revived on 1896. Next stop is the Presidential Mansion (ex-Royal Palace) where you will monitor the traditional Change of the Guard.
Our car will then climb you to St. George Lycabetus Hill with the best panoramic view of Athens (ideal place for taking photos). While on route of our private tour, you will see important buildings & places such as the National Library, the Academy, the Univercity, the Old Greek Parliament, the Catholic Cathedral (Church of Dionysios Areopagitis or St. Denis) & the Syntagma Square (Parliament building & Tomb of Unknown Soldier).
